Short interest is one key factor in my weekly score, but I never buy soley bc of high SI. A high SI (>5 days to cover) is most useful when the co's beating EPS, expected to see EPS growth, experiencing positive price/volume, etc.

Example: $CAR

It's got 7 days to cover, yet it's been under accumulation since August, EPS is soaring (bc easy comps), and it's beat every qtr since Sept 19.

As a result, it's been in my best list for months, including w/ a rarified air score >100 since Sept.

@ebcapital I am able to see the level of SI with my TDAmeritrade account but how do you know the days to cover etc? I’ve always been curious about that.

The data comes pretty much from the same source and it's always delayed (I think by 2 weeks). If you don't have something like Marketsmith to view it, you can also view it on Yahoo!Finance on the 'statistics' page. (control F "short ratio"). In most cases it's "close enough". https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/CAR/key-statistics?p=CAR
